I would echo SS's thought.  When my daughter was a first year J3 {and a good one}, I thought it was essential for her to have SG skis, so I made it a project to source the "right skis". Rossi had a nice short SG, as did Elan {who sponsored her}. We had three pairs to select from. She did a lot of training SG with the J1's and 2's on a pretty well know race trail, and figuring out the skis. Then she went to her first J3 SG and it's a totally different set, with a whole bunch of pretty big looping turns to "control speed."  SG's were totally wrong. She ends up, through Elan, with a pair of 182 GSX from the 2001-2 era, when they had a ton of metal on them. A used or "experienced" women's WC GS ski, with a narrow edge, good structure and a very greasy base. Easy to turn a speed, rock solid, not enough side cut to really worry about hooking up. Did very well, and felt very confident on that ski.  The next year she was going to use an SG ski in the JO's, and in the end her coach decided to go with that GS ski, again because of the course set. In my experience a J3 SG often looks a lot more like a FIS GS than a upper age group SG, so a GS ski with a big turn radius in the 175-183 range may be a good solution. Depends on where you are, the type of hills, sets etc. If you haven't discussed with her coaches, I would.  I've seen girls in that age group show up with $1000 worth of brand new SG skis, all excited, and just be brutally disappointed because they couldn't turn the ski, and being new, they didn't run that fast in the limited straights.  I remember seeing a USST skier when he was a first year J3 just clean up at a SG on a pair of 168 GS skis......his race GS skis. Worth thinking about, IMO.

May I ask you, what age-class do you mean by J2 , J3  ?

Thanks

Bringing up an old thread... but they mean club racing age groups.  They go from J1 (older high school kids) to J5 (littler kids)
